 Alan has the tools to take down the Battle Company. He has fast moving assault units that will kill Rhinos and Marines quite easily. He also has the Rapiers which will picking off Rhinos from afar. The true killers of my list however will be the Void Shield and the 2 Helldrakes.
  The Cultists will probably be joined by the Juggerlords to gain Fearless. They are also objective secured which will be really important for Alan to win this game. He will need to keep up on the Maelstrom and keep his eyes on the Tertiary missions. The Khorne Hounds will need to kill multiple Rhinos when they charge so that the Helldrakes can fly around and mop up the Marines. The Bloodletters will probably hide on some objectives and pick up some Maelstrom points.
   This list will give Alan all the tools he needs to put a stop to the Battle Companies reign. Can he do it, or will Khan and his detachment pull out another victory for the Emperor. Make sure to find out.

  This will be a tough match-up for the Battle Company. The Voidshield will be really tough for me to get through unless I get out of my Rhinos. Unfortunately, if I get out of my Rhinos Alan will charge my Marines and tie me up in combat for a few rounds. I will also need to waste a Tactical Doctrine to kill the 3 shields which will hurt me later in the game.
  Once I take down the Voidshield the game will get a lot more balanced and I will be able to Bolter down the Khorne hounds and Cultists. Unfortunately I am going to have to keep the Voidshield down so that the Helldrakes can’t gain protection from it. My Melta Guns are going to need to survive which is going to be tough to do with all those assault units. I will also have a lot riding on Khan and his bike unit. They will need to charge into some Cultists and try to kill the Lords. If Alan throws his Sorcerer into one of those units that will throw a wrench in that plan as force will hurt a lot.
   This is going to be one of the hardest match-ups I’ve had with my Battle Company and will be a great test for the Masters League. Make sure to tune in and don’t miss your chance to win the Horus Heresy box set.

    Wow, this looks like a really great matchup. Looking forward to seeing it play out, though, sadly, not in real time.

    That is a scary Chaos list. Which is great to be able to say 😛

    Frankie, how often does the Grav on your bike unit actually come into play? Have you thought about extra Melta on them instead?

      Hey Maeglin,

      Yeah I was just talking about switching them out for meltas with Goatboy haha.

      • Maeglin November 10, 2015 12:29 am #

        Haha, glad I wasn’t the only one thinking it.

    go team Frankie. Thunderdome is a better army list.

    This will be an interesting match. Been waiting to see rapier batteries in action. Which book are the fortifications in? They got rid of them in the brb ?

    • White925 November 9, 2015 4:32 pm #

      Which fortifications? The Voidshield was in Stronghold Assault.

    I honestly have no respect for the laser destroyers, maybe I’ll be proven wrong. I understand you need something to drop void shields for the heldrakes to be successful, but I would think a fire raptor or some such would be better. The high toughness of the destroyers doesn’t suck, but without knowing the other chaos foot options from memory I just have to believe there is some other void shield/vehicle killing unit for chaos. As for Frankie’s list, I usually dismiss his extra 20 tac marines as a waste of points, but versus those dog units they should be a great help by locking them down and screening his rhinos

    • Maeglin November 10, 2015 12:28 am #

      It’s Chaos with the Void Shield.

    Really looking forward to this!

    Do you think the Hades auto cannons would be a better choice for the Rapiers for this battle in particular?

      I like them, myself, probably better for punching Rhinos.
